Update: Official Press Release. via PressParty
Fresh from the announcement that she is to star in this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, Mollie King storms back on to the UK music scene with her new single ‘Hair Down’.
Mollie has reunited with pop maestro Brian Higgins – Xenomania to produce an in your face pop banger that fans have longed to hear from Mollie since her announcement she was releasing solo music.
‘Gotta let my hair down, I just wanna dance now’ proclaims Mollie on a immense track that gets firmly stuck in your head from it’s very first listen.
The song will be released on Friday 1st September via Island Records, accompanied by a breathtaking video, shot in South Africa by Kyle Lewis
Mollie says: “I’ve spent the last few months working hard in the studio developing my sound and experimenting with my solo music. I’m a huge fan of pop music myself and was thrilled about working with Brian Higgins again on this record. Brian wrote and produced ‘All Fired Up’ which was one of my favourite Saturdays songs; he totally gets pop and I think we’ve collaboratively come up with some amazing records that the fans are going to love hopefully as much as I do!”
Mollie has spent the last two years writing and recording her debut solo material with some of the globes hottest producers. Next month sees her hit the dance floor as one of the stars competing in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ 2017. Mollie is best known as one-fifth of leading girl group, The Saturdays. Since forming in 2007, the multi-platinum selling band have sold over 5 million records and concert tickets worldwide, scored 13 Top 10 singles and 5 Top 10 albums. The band also embarked on four nationwide headline tours and starred in three primetime TV series, including ‘Chasing The Saturdays’ for E! which aired in over 40 territories.
Beyond the group, Mollie has established herself as a mainstay of the fashion press, alongside being a permanent fixture on London’s style scene.
We all probably thought we’d never see music other than Vanessa with all the delays to Mollie’s and Una’s project, but we can now officially say the the second member of The Saturdays now has solo music out!
Mollie’s debut single ‘Back To You’ is now available to buy.
Remember the UK charts now heavily rely on streaming points rather than sales. So once you have downloaded it head back to your favourite streaming provider, this means Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, Youtube (Official accounts!) and stream their streaming version, rather than hitting replay on the one you purchases. Every 100 streams = 1 sale.
Did we expect this?
An very much on tread, slow (electro) pop song? Video with a storyline? … Roll on Friday we say!
We agree Mollie, we might need to cool down after this one!
Speaking to The Sun, Mollie spoke about her new single:
“Back To You is a very personal song to me. A lot of my writing inspiration has come from what I’ve been through over the last couple of years. The song is about a relationship that you know isn’t working but keep going back to them because you love them.
It is about a relationship I had that was in the public eye, but I’ve said everything I want to say about it in the lyrics to the song. Writing the song was actually a cathartic experience, as it allowed me to say everything I was feeling at that time about the situation.
When I first started writing songs for my solo record, I was writing Saturdays style bangers, but one day in the studio I decided to write something that was personal to me and how I was really feeling.”
Just in case you needed reminding, the new single (and album!) from the girls is out in under just TWO WEEKS! What Are You Waiting For? was also performed last night at the Leicester Music Festival, we where in attendance, the girls performed a selection of songs from their forthcoming Greatest Hits album, all this minus Frankie who wasn’t with the girls – presumably on her honeymoon, but (for whatever reason) the girls never announced why she was missing!
Here is the performance of ‘What Are You Waiting For?’ which was recorded by myself, so please refrain from reuploading the video, just use the embed links on Vimeo and credit us here at the-saturdays.co.uk
Una also went solo in Ireland (I’m joking!) she appeared on the RTE show Saturday Night with Miriam. Sadly with this being an RTE show we don’t have the full show but here’s Una performing Issues:
